I was searching around on how to remove the stock junks and found this thread that shows how to uninstall apps by using adb commends. (https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...s8-s8-t3654687 ) And I just got rid of anything that has bixby in it....
Bixaction was not working properly at the moment, so I thought I'd give a try and yes, it did seem to work. Now bixby is gone. Swiping to the left and pressing the button does nothing. One drawback is it completely killed the button, too which I'd love to
keep and remap it to something useful. Removed some stock app as well. Restarting the phone has no issues. Now I wonder if there's anyway to make that dead button work again

Don't hate the Bixby. It doesnt support my language at the moment but i believe it has some future.

By the way, does remapping app work?

After removing what I did, no. BixAction stopped working which makes sense. I have some ideas in my head and will be testing them out

Ohhhh. You are better off disabling them thru the working app than removing completely. If u decide you need them later, you end up having to reset your device vs 1 click re enable. Bxactions beta is case in point. He now has it working better. Now you need the voice piece to use it.

Your phone, your choice.

lol... anyways.


just reinstall bixby voice. its the only module needed for bx actions to communicate with the bixby service/button

or flash back stock. learn your lesson in disabling a package instead of removing it and then just leave Bixby voice untouched.

So, I disabled bixby from package disabler (from the play store). All packages except the Bixby Voice which is tied to the button. Then remapped with BX action to launch assistant. Hope this helps.

No need to remove. I use it to turn on Bluetooth while on the go.

BXactions to remap to bixby, this is before disabling anything, then go to app info on bixby and delete storage and cache >> disable all bixby packages except for bixby voice.
